> You do raise a good point about the ALPN dependency, however. That's a further complication to the QUIC/TLS interface: [...] The only way to avoid that complexity is to stop remembering the SETTINGS frame across 0-RTT.

I agree with you about the complexity of that, but I doubt giving up remembered settings in 0-RTT is a price we're willing to pay.  I feel like it's marginally better to have something post-handshake (NST) depend on the application (even if you get it during the handshake processing) than to have the transport parameters depend on application data.  We've currently been able to toe the line that nothing in the server's transport parameters depends on processing the client's transport parameters; ideally I'd consider that to include the rest of the Client Hello.
